The human landscape is teeming with language. Directions, instructions, recommendations, and advertising shape the way we move through the world. But what does a body do when it reads language embedded in places, and how does language affect how our bodies move through a place? This exhibition presents encounters with language, featuring work by writers, readers, and visual artists, each of whom consider the ways a reading transforms perceptions of space into experiences of place, exploring how the unstable medium of language works as a sextant, guiding the human reader through a landscape, a library or a gallery. Curated by Jared Stanley and Sarah Lillegard, the exhibition will span the Sierra Nevada College campus in the Garage Door Gallery, Tahoe Gallery, and Poetry Center.

Closing Reception: Thur Jan 28th, 5-7pm

Curator Talk: Wed Jan 6th, 7-9pm
